Let's start out by saying that what you're about to see in this video isn't really something you should go and try out on your own. All but maybe four of you reading this have enough sense in your head to figure that out, but our Mom would kill us if we didn't say something. Continuing on...

There's been a lot of snow on the East Coast these days (oh, and everywhere else, too), and it's causing more than a few of us to act out in new and different ways. For one New Yorker, the time seemed especially ripe to try out that new snowboard he'd picked up. Seeing as how NYC has precious few skiing runs that we know of, the gentleman in the video was forced to improvise.

Snowboarding, wakeboarding, it's all riding on water, man. The only difference is most lakes don't have as many parked cars to negotiate. See what we mean, below.

      My hood isn't nearly what it used to be 20 years ago, but only in New York would you see snowboarding in the street with live traffic BD

      Hey, that's what we used to call "skijoring" (Scandinavian word) when I was a kid! I'm 63 years old, a life-long-skier from a skiing family, and when we were little my dad used to tie a rope to the bumper of the car when the roads weren't plowed and pull us around the neighborhood like that. He probably shouldn't haven't taken those risks, but back then no one cared and I'm glad they didn't'! It was so great to see that guy doing this!!!

      To all the buzz killers. I'm from the generation that ran through the house with sissors in my hand, road my bike with no helmet, actually played outside, and made my own fireworks. Most will survive. Lighten up 1

        That was my moms favorite saying. "go outside and play". When we where 10, we took a bus to San Francisco' Chinatown and bought firecrackers and cherry bombs. (all illegal in California). Then traveled all over the city to do things. As long as we where home in time for dinner. It was a good life.

      Huh, try doing something like this over (AND putting a video of the whole thing online even! The balls!) where I live and you'd have the police knocking at your door in no time, along with a lot of media hassle about 'how irresponsible' such behavior is, and probably also a bunch of socialists/fascists shouting that the man should at least do some community service for setting straight the bad example he made, if they wouldn't shout for jail time even. Yes, Belgium. It's a nice country in it's own way, but socialist mentality has taken on extreme dimensions over here, it's truthfully bordering on fascism. As a European I'm not always that fond of the USA, for a variety of reasons. But when I see a video like this and the freedom this man has for doing what he's doing, it makes me envious. I wish we had some more of that over here.
